The 2024 Women’s Premier League (WPL) witnessed some sensational batting performances. Illustrious names such as Ellyse Perry, Meg Lanning, Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, and Deepti Sharma looked extraordinary against bowlers and delivered desired numbers to their team.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) broke into record books as the second WPL champions and in their success, their batting unit complemented the bowling department consistently. Their key players Perry and captain Mandhana strengthened Bangalore’s batting unit consistently. 

Delhi Capitals (DC), who were handed an eight-wicket defeat in the final and ended their campaign as runners-up, also saw magnificent support from their batters throughout the tournament. Lanning, Verma, and Alice Capsey exuded confidence with their bats to help their side reach the final for two consecutive seasons. Following the conclusion of the second WPL edition, it’s time to discuss five impressive batting displays of the tournament.

UP Warriorz didn’t have a great campaign this year but their all-rounder Deepti Sharma had a decent season. With the bat, she scored 295 runs in eight matches at a strike rate of 136.57 and ended up as the leading run-getter for her side. Against Gujarat Giants (GG) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, she recorded her best batting score.

Chasing an average total of 153, UPW lost their four wickets at a score of 16. In the critical situation, Sharma held her nerves and stitched a 109-run partnership. The 26-year-old played an unbeaten knock of 88 off just 60 with 13 boundaries (nine fours and four maximums) but her innings couldn’t take UPW home as they fell eight runs short in the end.
